Stacy McCain has this update on a court hearing in Rockville, Maryland this Tuesday
Convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin’s failed attempt to silence bloggers who tell the truth about Kimberlin’s criminality will be the subject of a court hearing Tuesday morning in Montgomery County, Maryland.
Kimberlin, who in 1981 was sentenced to 50 years in federal prison for his Indiana bombing spree and other crimes, has requested a “peace order” against Virginia attorney Aaron Walker, who says Kimberlin tried to “frame” him on an assault charge earlier this year. The final hearing on Kimberlin’s peace order request – which Walker has described as “frivolous” – is scheduled for Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. in Montgomery County District Court (191 E. Jefferson St., Rockville, Md. 20850), according to the court’s official Web site.
Walker, who has blogged under the pseudonym “Aaron Worthing,” gained unexpected national fame as a result of Kimberlin’s ongoing campaign of harassment and intimidation against Walker and his fellow citizen-journalists, including Seth Allen, Breitbart.com contributor Mandy ”Liberty Chick” Nagy, Los Angeles deputy district attorney Patrick “Patterico” Frey and even the award-winning conservative blogger known only by his online pseudonym Ace of Spades.
Kimberlin’s misguided effort to suppress the truth about his violent criminal past — including the 1978 terrorist bombing that brutally maimed Vietnam veteran Carl DeLong — backfired disastrously.
On Thursday, May 17, Walker published a 28,000-word account of his experience being targeted by Kimberlin, which soon caught the attention of leading figures in online New Media, including University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds, who writes the popular Instapundit blog, and bestselling author Michelle Malkin, who warned her readers, “Please remember: Kimberlin is a radical, violent, lying, dangerous felon.”
A note to my fellow bloggers, this story needs to stay in the news, the type of intimidation that Kimberlin uses has no place in a country that embraces freedom of speech.
